Guide for: Grand Canyon

With over 300 trips through the Grand Canyon and 33 years of guiding behind him, Scotty has become a modern day rafting icon. He readily shares his humor as well as his opinions with those willing to lend an ear. Although many situations on the river inspire Scotty, in his own words, "When the crew is really a team, and the folks see it, and the energy is so good it's contagious," is when he realizes what makes him truly love his job.

"Our trip leader Scotty was amazing! He was part laid-back old hippie, part benevolent drill sergeant, part den mother." Susan Willis, Arlington, TX

We felt very very fortunate to have him as our leader." Susan Stair, St. John, Virgin Islands
